sound installation 'menschenstromverstärker' (human current amp)

the bridge over the river 'wienfluß', in Vienna's stadtpark was adapted for use as a human current amp (MSV-2000). the movements of people on the bridge activated and modified sounds of various human currents: demonstrants, traffic, tourists, joggers, shoppers. this formed an interactive sound installation which enabled those walking over the bridge to acoustically experience their own participation in the human current.
